The highest risk of recurrence following therapy for early stage endometrial cancer is within 3 years, and the most frequent sites of recurrence are the vaginal vault and the pelvis.
We describe an unusual case of a patient with recurrent endometrial cancer to the wall of the sigmoid colon and adjacent lymph nodes, 15 years after radical therapy for early stage disease. The patient was treated by sigmoidectomy and adjuvant megesterol acetate. She is well more than 4 years thereafter.
